Featuring over 750 full-color illustrations, this text gives surgeons a thorough working knowledge of anatomy as seen during specific operative procedures. The book is organized regionally and covers 111 open and laparoscopic procedures in every part of the body. For each procedure, the text presents anatomic and technical points, operative safeguards, and potential errors. Illustrations depict the topographic and regional anatomy visualized throughout each operation. This edition has an expanded thoracoscopy chapter and new chapters on oncoplastic techniques; subxiphoid pericardial window; pectus excavatum/carinatum procedures; open and laparoscopic pyloromyotomy; and laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding.

A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.

Sir
thanks for making your valuable book available for practicing and turning to be surgeons. however had the pictures been in color it would have added extra benefits to the readers , I mean to
say the color picture as it will be seen while operating or learning to operate.
I thanks you for the coverage of topics you had included
My humble request if you can rethink on color pictures
Thanking you once again and best wishes of the season
Dr.Reddy C.J.
NB : with due permission from you I shall continue to read till the end and shall revisit this subject

The section on small gut anastomosis needs to be revised. Once the twin clamps or identical soft clamps are positioned together, Two stay sutures should be put in place- one on the mesenteric side and the other on the antimesenteric side. The posterior interrupted sutures should be placed not below the clamps but above them. One doesn't have to use silk because silk promotes infection. Polyglycolic acid is somehow better. The inner interrupted is run from one end to the other; the starting end being folded on a haemostat to distinguish it from the one earlier placed. This running stitch should not be locked. It comes all the way to the anterior layer. Once the anterior layer is reached, one of the soft clamps should be loosened to release tension. On reaching the end, the stitch is tied to it's tail end which had earlier been folded on a haemostat.
Finally, I never wrap the anastomosis in omentum. I feel this is an unnecessary step.
